What You Can Expect When You Visit

We want you to feel comfortable when you visit with us here at the Greenfield Church of Christ.  The following paragraphs will describe some key things about our Sunday Morning worship service.  If you have further questions about our services on Sunday evening or Wednesday feel free to contact us at info@greenfieldchurchofchrist.com

 

 

  • We aspire to make your visit with us a friendly and informative experience.  

  • On Sunday mornings we divide into age appropriate classes to be involved in a study of a Bible lesson.  Feel free to ask someone in the congregation about which class your young ones would need to be attending.

  • After these classes are concluded we congregate in the auditorium for worship services.

  • Before our worship begins we have announcements and you will be asked to fill out a visitor card which will be picked up by young men after the announcements conclude.

  • Our worship services are Bible-centered.  The order in which we engage in worship is not dictated in the Bible.

  • We start our services with a prayer.  Often people bow their heads and close their eyes during the prayer.

  • Next we sing a song that helps to focus our minds upon the Lord's Supper.

  • Singing is "a cappella".  We do not utilize any mechanical instruments (ie. piano, guitar, etc.) in our worship service.  References for this are found in Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16. In these verses you find that we are to sing and there is no mention of the use of instruments.

  • The Lord's Supper is served after the singing of the song.

 

 

  • The Lord's Supper was established by Christ in Matthew 26:26-29.  We see it in practice in Acts 20:7   Two different types of plates will be passed down the row.  The first contains unleavened bread that resembles a cracker.  This emblem is to represent the body of Christ.  The second plate contains several small cups containing "fruit of the vine" or as we commonly refer to as grape juice.  This emblem represents the blood that was shed by Christ.  Combined they remind of the sacrifice that Christ gave upon the cross.

  • After the Lord's Supper we sing a few more songs.

  • After the songs, we pass collection plates in which people contribute money to further the mission of the local congregation. You may contribute if you choose.

  • When that is finished we have a scripture reading

  • After the scripture reading the preacher will begin his sermon.

  • At the end of the sermon the preacher will offer an invitation where he will explain the necessary steps to become a member of the Church of Christ. He will also encourage those who need to confess public sins. Anyone having a need to respond will go to the front pew.

  • If no one goes to the front for the invitation we end our service with a prayer and are dismissed
